Mel Giedroyc to star in LUCE at the Southwark Playhouse

It has been announced that Mel Giedroyc (The Sound of Music LIVE/The Great British Bake Off) will star in the UK première of JC Lee’s play Luce. 

Directed by Simon Dormandy, the production opens on 11th March (previews from 9th March) and runs until 2nd April 2016. 

Design is by Dick Bird. Further casting is to be announced for the show which premiered at the Lincoln Center Theater in 2013.

Amy’s son is perfect: star athlete, academic highflyer and high school hero. So why are there lethal explosives in his locker?

Luce is about the fear of homegrown terrorism. Set in an ordinary American town, but addressing anxieties that are growing throughout the Western world, it raises troubling questions about parenting, education and racism. Do we ever really know our children? Why must they be perfect? And where do the springs of violence lie?
